If this machine is like other of its type then you may find the manual taped to the inside of the machine near the bottom side panel.
open the bottom access panel (3 screws on bottom front lip) and look for it as it will have the codes. near where the filter is .
while you were down there cleaning the filter did you check that the pump impellers move freely and were not clogged with any debris.

My Kenmore H3 stops working, starts beeping and flashing "F9", but it only happens when I'm washing a heavy load like jeans or bath towels. I think it gets off-balance and I have found that if I hit "pause" once and then hold in "start" briefly it somehow resets itself and works fine from then on till the load is completely done.

SOURCE: i cant get the filter out of my washing machine help please

Sometimes a bigger object might block the filter knob, and make it impossible to screw out. Then the only way is to remove the end of the sump hose attached to the filter and remove the stuck object.
(In my filter this object was an Umbraco key) :-)

First, see the Sears Parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22712100

Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Initial thoughts are a worn/broken motor coupler.

See the following for how to get to it and check it.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=135&osCsid=6019c5e82bfa177df953f5d6ebeac983

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

It's possible that the prongs have broken and the humming that you hear is the pieces rubbing against the center rubber piece.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

We have a Samsung WF8802 RPZ washing machine with a 5ud fault code. What is the problem?


We have a Samsung WF8604NGW front loading dimond 6kg washing machine. We had the 5ud error message. It turned out the filter was clogged with fluff from a new set of bathroom mats my wife washed. To fix: Put the machine on to drain (if poss) - should be 1 minute on our machine however as the machine was so clogged it took around 15 to finish. Also use the draning tube located next to the filter (on our machine) to get rid of as much water as poss. Now remove filter and clear (warning some water will remain in the system) Before spinning any laundry run the rinse cycle (with an empty drum) a couple of times and clear the filter each time. If the filter is still clogged the laundry will spin heavy as the water will still be in the drum leaving you with no very dry laundry and a horrible noise during the spin. Regards Rik.

Use a fabric softener such as sheets sold to include with laundry in dryer. Shuts down a lot of static-cling. Also be sure to clean your lint filter frequently to save energy and dry clothes faster.

My vaccume has little suction


Hello :

1: Check that the Dyson's brushbar knob is turned to the "Carpets" setting for vacuuming non-delicate and raised pile carpet. Vacuuming carpet on the "Bare floor" setting usually leaves a telltale single wheel mark on the pile, and pickup is severely limited.


2:Locate the removable filter on the side of the vacuum. It will be marked with a raised circular representation.

3:Press down on the release button with your thumb as you lift filter housing up and out

4:Examine the filter for debris. Wash the blue foam and yellow framed filter in cold water. (See Tips section.) Let dry for 12 hours. Do not wash the outer filter housing that snaps into the vacuum; simply wipe clean with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Replace the filter when completely dry.

5:Locate the airway inspection valve on the opposite side of the vacuum. Press the release button as you lift the valve up and away from the machine.

6:Remove any debris or clogs you find inside.

7:Use a soft cloth to clean up lighter debris and completely clear the airway valve.

8:Tip the Dyson vacuum over to find the U-bend at the back of the unit. Press the release button as you pull the U-bend down and away from the machine.

9:Inspect the U-bend and remove debris. Be sure to line up the release button as you snap the U-bend back into place.

10:Check all removable pieces to be sure they are attached properly and snapped correctly into place. The soleplate should be flush with the cleanerhead.

What you need for this :

  • Large slotted screwdriver
  • Scissors
  • Washcloth
  • Soft cleaning cloths
  • Household surface cleaner, safe for plastics
  • Crochet hook or similar long-handled tool

Warning :

Unplug the vacuum before doing any troubleshooting. Follow all manufacturer's instructions and warnings. The yellow encased filter and blue foam filter pad can be submerged and rinsed in cold water only. Do not use detergent. Do not wash or dry in dish or laundry machines. Do not dry in the oven or microwave.

Red light on,check filter


Is this a ventless dryer? I.e. a condensing dryer?
If so, there is a filter that filters the lint out of the water in the condensing unit. Check your owner's manual to find out how to service this. It is usually a little door on the front, bottom of the unit.
If it is not a ventless dryer, then the only filter I know is the lint screen.

Good Luck!
